Posted by: Watch Athletics

2016 world indoor champion Gianmarco Tamberi cleared a new World-leading 2.35m,  his best jump since 2016, on the second day at the Italian Indoor Championships in Ancona on Sunday (21).

Tamberi also attempted a new Italian record of 2.38m but failed on all three attempts.

"This 2.35m is worth a lot to me; not just because of that extra centimeter on the 2.34m from four days ago, but because of the way I achieved it," said Tamberi.

On the first day on Saturday, the 18-year-old Larissa Lapichino set a new world U20 long jump indoor record with a huge jump of 6.91m (22-8ft).
